The Heart’s Desire for the Divine

A few gems from Fr. Joseph Komonchak’s blog, In verbo veritas and his homily for this weekend:

Hearts that are satisfied with what they have made of themselves do not hunger for the righteousness, the integrity that only God can make real. The self-satisfied experience no need of him. [emphasis added]

Love of the truth, delight in the truth, is at least incipient love of God and of Christ. This surely is the ordinary way in which people begin to move toward God long before they know they are being drawn toward God, if indeed they ever come to know that it is God whom they love and desire.
